So I was lucky enough to pick up a very cheap Louboard 1.0. I bought it for a gag and to keep in the office for a fun commute to the local coffee shop.
But I actually love the size and weight. Its been a load of fun. But man it is slow!!! The single hub does NOT do hills, like not even a slight incline. The battery sag as well is real!!
So I’m thinking I need to throw in a VESC (or two) and maybe change the battery pack. I have experience in belt setups but I have no idea about hub motors. According to the louboards website it has a 1.5kw motor. I assume based off the fact it hardly moves that it is terrible.
So I want to upgrade to a new hub motor setup. The board is running 83mm wheels which I actually like on the nickel board setup. So Im looking for some help.
Can any one suggest:
- Single or dual setup?
- Quality hub motors with some grunt? (prefer high torque over top speed)
(prefer 83mm rather then 90mm) The new Predator Banshee hubs look pretty powerful.
The inners of the Louboard. The VESC’s are tight but it should fit where the original ESC is.
